My guest this week is Matthew Markus, co-founder and CEO of Pembient.

We discuss digital biology, cellular agriculture, 3D printing, security of species, big visions, entrepreneurship and envisioning a world without wildlife poaching and the destruction of species.

What does it take to disrupt the illegal trade of animals and envision a world that has an increasing population of rhinos?

Pembient is leveraging advances in biotechnology to fabricate wildlife products, such as rhino horn and elephant ivory, at prices below the levels that induce poaching. Their goal is to replace the illegal wildlife trade, a $20B black market, and the fourth largest after drug, arms, and human trafficking, with sustainable commerce.

About Matthew Markus

Matthew is Co-founder and CEO of Pembient, a company biofabricating wildlife products. A serial entrepreneur, Matthew has 15 years of startup experience. His past ventures include PrivacyBank.com, an internet company that was acquired by InfoSpace (now NASDAQ: BCOR). Matthew’s passion presently lies with the emerging animal replacement industry, of which Pembient is a part. Pembient seeks to stop the poaching of, and prevent the farming of, iconic species. Chief among these is the rhinoceros, whose horn is prized as a carving material. Pembient uses the tools of biotechnology to create biofabricated horn that has the same molecular structure as horn produced by a rhinoceros. The company has been featured on CNN, TechCrunch, and The Guardian. Via Pembient, Matthew is a graduate of IndieBio, the world’s first biotech accelerator. Additionally, he holds a B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and a Masters of Engineering Management, as well as an M.S. in Genetic Epidemiology, from Washington University in St. Louis.
